Antennas spotting in Kenosha #9

I've seen this one 22nd Avenue right behind the small equipment shop. It's obvious the curved reflector and design tells me that's a UHF but I've never seen one where the reflector was so curved and actually came all the way to the mast. That is a very stout antenna! Who made that?

The VHF, is that bi-directional? Kenosha is midway between Chicago and Milwaukee so it would make sense. Who made that VHF antenna?

Probably Winegard (available in late 60s thru 70s).

Yes, looks like it is bi-directional.

Don't know.

Several manufacturers made 'Area or Regional Specials'.
